3/7/08 12:00 am - othela - The Crescent in York: Update
Awaiting more discussion with the rest of you, but Ruth and I thought the tenth would be a good day - that's the Saturday AFTER Bank Holiday weekend. However. I am all for skipping out of a day of lectures that week to avoid too great a rush (7th/8th/9th?). I might be the only one. I mean, the rest of you have degrees to study for.
Trev has put forth the idea of running around in full medieval regalia for the full day. Full medieval regalia... might be hard on the trains? But weapons and such - wooden ones - are probably readily available from various Yorkish outlets. But the Jorvik ones look good. Bagsy the cross sword :p
Potential venues - and prices - look to be shaping up as follows:
Jorvik (Adult £7.95, Student, £6.60)
York Dungeon (Adult £8.35, Student £7.65 - prices rise depending on time of day)
NRM (FREE FOR ALL)
Rail Tickets - £8 return if bought in advance
Centres open at about 10:30, and close around 5:00, which will probably be the start and end times of the day of riotousness and joy... depending on how long it takes for us to get to York and how early we are willing to get up for the crack *does not know how far away Leicester is* *ashamed*
Lunch depends entirely on the weather, but as I'm hoping for sword fights I'd like some sun :p And so, possibly, a picnic?
So. Which would be best? To attend one venue and spend the rest of the time wandering around York and its sights? or to go to two? (York dungeon books in two hour slots, for reference - having two hours in two places would leave us some time over...)
More ideas? NEEDS DISCUSSION ON MSN! Ruthicus is in Spain this week, but hopefully we'll hear more when she gets back.
